Marcus Tudgay: On the mend

Marcus Tudgay: On the mend

Tudgay, 30, is working his way back to fitness after suffering a broken collarbone during a loan spell at Forest's npower Championship rivals Barnsley at the end of last year.

He has not made a first-team appearance since sustaining the injury in the Tykes' 3-1 home defeat to Blackburn on December 29.

The player featured in the full 90 minutes as the Reds' Under-21 side drew 0-0 at Leeds on Tuesday afternoon.

Tudgay was joined by defenders Dan Harding and Daniel Ayala, on loan from Norwich, in getting some valuable game time following lengthy injury lay-offs.

Harding has been out for almost two months with a calf complaint while Ayala's four-month absence is down to a hamstring problem.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
